It’s been a while since my last post so I thought I’d share what progress has been made at the bench lately.
Our FURY diorama is now very near to completion and I have now finished the autumn tree and finished weathering the groundwork. The Tank is now just about there too and I have begun work on the figures. It’s a long and involved process but well worth the effort when one gets it right.
So here’s what we have so far…..
The tree is in place and all those photo-etch leaves are now painted. I will use the left over leaves to place on the ground like they have fallen off the tree.
The Sherman is now finished and all I need do is add crew to the top hull and dirt to the tracks.
I wanted to re-create the road sign from the movie so this one was scratch built from plasticard and painted up to resemble the real thing.
I normally choose a brass plaque for my diorama builds, however I wanted something different for this one. I took some plate and sprayed it O/D green then copied the famous text from FURY’s gun barrel.
The finished layout:
Next job-Building and painting our tank crew. It’s a long slog so I invited the lads round for a drink!
Hope you are enjoying the build so far! Take care and Happy Modelling!
